   Oct-21-19 Grand Swiss IoM (2019) (replies)
 
csmath: <Gotta feel for Levon Aronian not getting that seat in the candidates...> He had a plenty of chances in the new system and earlier and he missed them all so there is nobody to blame. He is just not strong enough. I am always of opinion that if somebody is stronger than ...
 
   Oct-15-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
 
csmath: So ... as much as Shirov used to be considered a great endgame player he could not hold this against Magnus. And I knew right from the point when Magnus sacrificed the exchange that he sees the positional win no matter what Shirov does. I mean I trusted Magnus here more than my SF ...
 
   Oct-06-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
 
csmath: Can you be attacked by a knife-waving lunatic and killed on the street? Yes, of course. And if you stay in your house you could also be killed by a helicopter slamming into it. But it is more likely you will be writing posts for chessgames debating unlikely events that 4-5 will read ...
 
   Sep-14-19 Alekhine vs K Junge, 1942 (replies)
 
csmath: 26. Bxf7 is just for the style, typical Alekhine, it is prettier than 26. Qg5. It is interesting that Alekhine does not comment 25. ...f5? which is an awful mistake opening diagonal for attack on d8.
 
   Sep-05-19 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
csmath: Nakamura actually won the match despite these hickups. But it would have been better that he lost because in the interview after the match the ugly head of old Nakamura reared out again, the same old arrogant j*** that we all know well from the internet blitz. No change there, it ...
 
   Sep-05-19 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
csmath: Kasparov said that he was retiring because there was nothing else to accomplish. So he is not in for "accomplishments." He is not a kind of guy that has a pleasure playing and losing all the time. Karpov could be such a guy but Kasparov was not the kind of guy that takes losing ...
 
   Aug-30-19 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
 
csmath: I was running it for a while and my engine goes half/half, I mean black losses in some games and draws in others. But no win for black with engine. Carlsen would be better advised not to repeat this as it does not look very good for black regardless of the exchange. We'll see if he ...
 
   Aug-30-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
 
csmath: <@Sokrates> No problem, at least you are civil enough. Time will tell as it always does. You know there is one good thing about Carlsen - he was very gracious in defeat and that is not an easy thing to be. Despite a lot of criticism on his social habits and the fact that ...
 
   Aug-30-19 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
csmath: It is the hesitations of age but opening expertise stands the test of time, Anand still knows more than these younger guys. He has done OK.
 
   Aug-30-19 A Giri vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019 (replies)
 
csmath: Yup, most rook endgames are drawn but that does not mean they are trivial so that one can play them with 10 seconds per move all the way.
